I should have been more specific
the brown-round thing thats attached to your volume pot, thats a capacitor, but its the "Wrong" type. There should be a 3 digit code on there similar to the 223k on the one on your tone pot. But again, as long as its the right size, that really shouldnt be much of anything.
Ill go over the other pictures tomorrow and see if I can see anything overtly incorrect. so far the only things that annoy me are where its very obvious something was soldered at places, and now its not. (i.e. the two pins on the bottom of the tone pot coil tap switch should NOT have had anything soldered to it, and it looks like something was soldered to the bottom of the switch as well, and now its removed)
edit: everything considered, it just really seems like a ground issue.
edit 2: Do me a favor. Get a some tape and some wire. Take the wire, expose the ends and connect the bottom of the tone and volume pots. Im not seeing a ground wire connecting the two.
